C111 Archaeology and Prehistoric Cultures in the Aegean

Professor: Markos KATSIANIS

This course examines the prehistoric societies of the Aegean with a view to:

a) investigate the cultural processes that led from hunter-gatherer groups to sedentary farming communities and the subsequent ‘palatial’ cultures, and

b) outline the basic approaches and methodological tools used by the discipline of Archaeology in the study of human activity through the material remains of the past.

An overview of archaeological research and material culture in the prehistoric Aegean is provided with reference to major archaeological sites, while fundamental archaeological concepts (such as culture groups, dating and typology) are closely explored. This discussion is extended to contemporary perceptions of prehistoric culture.
